US sales of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids surpassed a record 16,000 units in September.
No, really, when's that second-gen Leaf coming?
Raise your hand if you're surprised.
US sales totals for the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf this past month look a whole heck of a lot like the numbers from all the other months this year.
The Chevy Volt outsold the Nissan Leaf by over 900 units last month. Pretty much how it's been for all of 2016.
Tesla Model S sales in Canada jump in March, and leapfrog Chevrolet Volt's for the first-quarter lead.
April sales numbers are in, and the second-gen Chevy Volt once again trounces the Nissan Leaf in the US.
The Chevy Volt moved 2,114 units last month, a big increase from the December 2014 numbers. The Nissan Leaf, on the other hand, did a lot worse.
With a new Chevy Volt to compete with, sales of the Nissan Leaf took a bit of a nosedive in November.
The official figures are out and the Chevy Volt is really taking the sales fight to the Nissan Leaf with a huge increase following the release of its all-new 2016 model.
September sales of the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf were both down in a big way. 56.7% for the Leaf and 31.9% for the Volt.
The ongoing saga of sales of the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt continues with the EV on top. For now.
Chevy sold 920 Spark EVs last month in the two states where it's available. That's more than the 905 Volts sold nationwide. Thank a lower lease price and aggressive incentives.
For April 2015, the Nissan Leaf sold 1,553 units while the Chevy Volt has its best 2015 showing with 905 sales.
Different month, same story. That's the gist of the monthly US sales numbers from the Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf. These were the first two mass-market plug-in vehicles to go on sale in the US and we've been comparing their sales numbers for what seems like ages now. So far, the 2014 tale of the tape shows the all-electric once again trumping the plug-in hybrid. The last time the Volt outsold the Leaf was in October 2013.
UPDATE: The official press release says that "Volt [sales were] up 7 percent," but Randy Fox let AutoblogGreen know that this is simply due to a change in the fleet/retail mix between March 2013 and 2014. The actual number sold was exactly the same in the two months.
